In addition to above, the mountains also have tweetsie railroad in boone (great for kids not so much adults), Grandfather mountain, Brown Mountain lights, blowing rock, Hooker falls and much more depending on the area we settle on.
In Raleigh/Durham I would pick Jones Family Campground in Mebane. There are Tanger outlets in Mebane. the Duke Chapel and Sara Duke Gardens as well as Duke tobacco plantation, natural history museum and bright leaf square (where the low bridge video accidents are filmed) all in Durham about 30 min away. Chapel hill with UNC is 30 minutes away. Raleigh has several museums and is 45-50 min away. The zoo is about an hour in Lexington. Several wineries within 15 min to an hour as well. Good bBQ in this area.... Maybe talk to FROG about a catered BBQ dinner?????
The beach would probably be Rodanthe on the outer banks. Lots to do there. Out of time on lunch break. I will update tha later.
